The local church is dedicated to Saint Nicholas (Slovene: sveti Miklavž) and belongs to the Parish of Sveti Križ–Podbočje. It was built in the late 13th to early 14th century in the Romanesque style. Chance finds and the morphology of the surrounding terrain indicate possible Roman occupation of the site.[3]
